Do I need traditional security software on my laptop, phone or tablet if I have F-Secure SENSE Router?
Note: This article is valid for you only if you are using the standalone version of F-Secure SENSE Router (not part of the F-Secure TOTAL package).
With F-Secure SENSE Router no traditional security software is needed.
As F-Secure SENSE Router is using a three-layer protection system consisting of the F-Secure SENSE Router device, the F-Secure SENSE Router app, and F-Secure Security Cloud, the F-Secure SENSE Router app needs to be installed on your computers and mobile devices to gain the fullest protection with SENSE. In addition, the F-Secure SENSE Router app is used for the initial set-up of the SENSE Router device.
On the go when you are outside of your home network, the SENSE Router app provides protection for your mobile devices as well. This is a lightweight software application, which consumes less device resources compared to most traditional security software.
Note: The availability of protection features for F-Secure SENSE Router varies by platform, and the features available also depend on whether you are at home in your home network or on the go. For more details, please refer to What are the current security features for F-Secure SENSE Router?.
